New to me '99 750 Supersport. I am loving this bike. Only owned it a week and still have a big stupid grin!

The latest pic of my Duc with the new Speedymoto belt covers. My Desmo times covers cracked when my mechanic got a little overzealous...

Regards,

Not sure I like the idea of cam belts flying around in the breeze.

They look more like pulley covers . It would be easy to check belt tension!

I'm not big on the half fairing bikes, but damn that looks sweet!! Are those 999 wheels? Looks good with the chunky rear tyre - 185??

Thank you for the complements! The pulley covers are growing on me, but I'm also going to take a shot at repairing my broken belt covers as well.

The rims are forged Marchesini 10 spokes that I ordered from TAW a few years back. The front rim is for a 25mm axle, as pretty much the whole front end is from a '99 900SS. I'm running a 180 tire on the rear. I used to use 170, but it's just easier to find 180's these days for some reason.

If someone had told me how much time and money I was going to spend building this thing up over the last 12 years I probably would've said they and I were crazy! I just love this bike though...

Regards,

Jeff
